Jonathan leads up Walk The Plank on a beautiful da...

All climbers must use existing rappel stations for descent. MORE INFO >>>


Starts just to the right of Lost at Sea, on the lower side of the arete feature. Move up into a corner, pull up and follow the weakness up until you come to a juggy traverse left toward the anchors of Lost at Sea.

Watch out for loose rock and test holds carefully - the base of the chimney has a large loose block. Be careful esp w/ large parties that often congregate in the area at the base of the upper tier.

With a good directional piece or two up high the whole route can be set as an alternate top-rope by leading Lost at Sea (folks often do the start and merge w/ Lost at Sea w/o directionals)


Standard rack.

Great climb! My favorite of the trio of moderates in that area. It was more challenging than Lost at Sea. Felt like a true 5.8.

This climb now has its own set of rings at the top. Not sure when they got there. Very convenient.

Getting up onto the first big ledge from the corner is the crux. It is funky if you don't know where the good holds are.
